How to do Punches:

Starting Position: Get into an offset stance, one foot diagonally in front of the other. Keep your hands up in a defensive position — with your hands in fists at chin level.

Movement: Twist your entire body as you punch right then left. Swivel on the balls of your feet, driving powerfully through your hips. When your arm, extends, it should have a slight bend in the elbow.

Return: After each punch, return your hands to the defensive position at your chin.
